NFL:

The Detroit Lions have hired Kevin Anderson as an assistant to the general manager. The Lions confirmed last night that Anderson will head the football operations department. He most recently was a director of player development for the New England Patriots. Detroit hired Bob Quinn as its general manager earlier this month. Quinn was also part of the Patriots organization.

I'm comfortable to talk about anything, Bob Woodruff says. I'm lucky to be alive.

In January 2006, Woodruff stood on the precipice of stardom as the new co-anchor, together with Elizabeth Vargas, of ABC's World News Tonight, the heir in many ways to the legendary globetrotting anchor Peter Jennings, who had died of cancer the previous summer.

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the WAMC Locked Box, the Hoosick Falls water crisis, and Michael Bloomberg vs. Rupert Murdoch.
